ROSS driver’s waltz April 24, 2007

Posted by Mia in Circulation.

When dealing with the ROSS system, that’s one step forward, one step sideways! Some of the dust settles enough so that other problems that were obscured earlier come to the fore.

Data in the fourth test file uploaded (for potential loading into the circ system) revealed that some deeper assumptions in the specs were not holding true (as in: when is a termination date not a termination date?!)

This is just the nature of the beast; it simply reflects the inner workings of a complex organization.

It’s neither good nor bad; it’s to be expected.

Luckily, everyone at both ends has more important issues on the front burners right now, so the feeling is mutual.
